WASHINGTON, DC (January 14, 2019) – Broccoli City announced today that it would expand its programming to include three full days of events leading up to the annual festival on April 27, 2019. From April 25th through 27th, attendees will enjoy a complete schedule of panels, exhibits, networking opportunities, fitness programming and live performances celebrating music, culture, art and volunteerism.
Featured programming includes:
“From 2012 to now we’ve seen a significant increase in the number of individuals that attend the festival and are living out our mission of building thriving urban communities.” said Brandon McEachern, founder of Broccoli City. “After the tremendous growth we experienced in 2018, it became even more important for us to invest in programming that will ensure our community continues to grow with us. We know what it’s like to be the topic of discussion but still not have a seat at the table; and we’re committed to rewriting that narrative. Our goal this year is to not only produce an incredible festival, but to expand our conference and ancillary events to educate, equip and empower people that look like us to be able to make the same positive impact. ”
Last year’s festival drew a sell out crowd of more than 35,000 attendees and featured live performances by Migos, Cardi B, Miguel, Nipsey Hussle, H.E.R, Daniel Caesar and more.
“The Broccoli City team has a strong pulse on the community and has done an incredible job of delivering authentic experiences that can’t be replicated. We joined forces in 2018 to produce a stellar line up that was met with great success and we’re committed to raising the bar on both the festival and conference again this year” said Shawn Gee, President of Live Nation Urban “We’re looking forward to expanding our partnership and continue our support of the organization as it transitions into its next phase of evolution and growth.”
